Storing My Files in the Cloud

(Written on my snappy new Windows 7 RC installation.  Operating systems are so much faster before they get those pesky applications installed.) I’ve been gradually transitioning all my file storage and backup to online services, aka “The Cloud”.  I’m nearly done and thought I’d share what I’…
